Same owner for 69 years and one of the last remaining untouched Arts and Crafts home in Victoria. Grand formal living room with natural fir wainscotting, cozy inglenook with fireplace, separate formal dining room with built-in cabinetry, oak and fir floors throughout. Three bedrooms; master is huge with den alcove, 4pce bath and a kitchen untouched since the 1940s. Classic design, original decor with recent upgrades: roof, electrical, plumbing, gas furnace, fireplace and hot water heater. Full basement with high ceiling offering much potential for development. A great project with architectural significance. *Note: Vintage woodstove in kitchen not included*.

I have sold a property at Es Esquimalt, Esquimalt.
This 3 Bedroom Condo is Spotless!. Located on the quiet (and cool ) side of the building, this large unit is freshly painted in a neutral Cloud White. In 2003 it was taken to the spa and freshened up (and still looks marvelous, trust me) - new carpeting, light fixtures, kitchen counter and floor, and appliances. It has an enclosed balcony, storage on site, water filtration and enough cupboards to accomodate shoes galore. Shopping? Across the street. Saxe Point? A HeartSmart walk away.
